Civil Marriage"a basic human right...State should not interfere"
.
In February 2004, the Board of the Northern Virginia Ethical Society endorsed the following Civil Marriage Resolution being circulated by The Task Force for Same-Sex Marriage (www.gaypasg.org).

The Civil Marriage Resolution states: because civil marriage is a basic human right and an individual personal choice, resolved, the State should not interfere with same-gender couples who choose to marry and share fully and equally in the rights, responsibilities, and commitment of civil marriage.
